You have to go with sql loader or external table to load into table.

The error you are facing is quite self-explanatory, is not it?

In Windows, most files contain extension. E.g. EXE for executable or BAT for batch files.
Are you sure, that file sqlldr (without extensions) is placed in the root directory of C drive?

I just wonder why you do not continue in the thread about the same topic (http://www.orafaq.com/forum/m/536537/96705/#msg_536537)
or why you did not put any feedback there (yes, I consider it impolite).

Search for your sqlldr.exe file and either run the command from that directory or use the full directory path in the command or put the directory in your operating system default paths. You also need to do the same with your control file. Also, do not use any spaces on either side of the equal sign in "skip=1".

Can you attach the sample file with few records?
Do you have privilges for creating the external directory?

create or replace directory dir_temp as 'c:\oracle\mk';

grant read, write on directory dir_temp to <<user_name>>

select * from all_directories where directory_path='c:\oracle\mk'

You don't need sqlldr to create a control file. Use your favorite editor to create the control file YOURSELF. don't make someone else do it for you.
There are samples all over the internet. Do note though that without sqlldr, you will not be able to use it, so I do not see the point of either someone creating one for you or you creating it yourself.

Then use external tables, but based on your questions, this is way beyond your comprehension. Plus, you would need access to putting the data file on the server, not the client.

Let's start by confirming whether you have SQL*Loader or not for sure. Since you are using Windows, using your mouse, put the arrow on the start button in the lower left corner of your screen, then click the left mouse button, move your arrow to all programs, then click the left mouse button again, move your arrow to accessories, then click the left button again, move your arrow to command prompt, then click your left button again. From the DOS command prompt window go to the root directory by typing cd\ and pressing the enter key. Then search for any sqlldr files in any sub-directories by typing:

dir sqlldr.*/s

Then press the enter key. Wait for it to return to the c:\> prompt so that you know it has finished. Then post here what it displayed inbetween. Please copy and paste, if you can, instead of typing. If you left click in the upper left corner of the DOS command prompt window, you should be able to select edit and use the features to mark and copy, then paste it here, using ctrl-v. Please post the whole thing from the cd\ command to the return to the c:\> prompt.

Note that this is not the only method of searching for the file, but it is one that checks all directories and produces output that can be copied and pasted easily.
